Kevin De Bruyne left Manchester City fans in awe as he showcased a sensational piece of skill during an open training session while the team is on their pre-season tour of Asia ahead of the 2023/24 campaign.
After securing a 5-3 victory against Yokohama F. Marinos and beating Bayern Munich 2-1 in their latest matches, the club arrived in South Korea for an open training session in front of an enthusiastic crowd of 23,000 fans.
De Bruyne, who was forced to leave the Champions League final against Inter Milan last month due to an injury, seems to be back in top form.
He demonstrated his brilliance during the training session, pulling off an astonishing move that left not one, but THREE of his own Manchester City teammates baffled and beaten by his skill. The fans were treated to a mesmerizing display of talent from the Belgian midfielder.
The Belgium maestro shrugged off Oscar Bobb before rinsing Bernardo Silva, then skipped past Kalvin Phillips with absolute ease.

Man City fans on social media loved their star man ripping it up in training.
One Twitter user wrote: “The fact he can do this but just doesn’t have too.”
A second claimed: “We will cook, EPL ain’t ready.”
A third tweeted: “KDB take your time with it. Need you healthy the last 3 months of the season.”
A fourth said: “This is his prime szn mark my words. Assist record incoming.”
Referencing next Sunday’s Community Shield showdown against Arsenal, another added: “Oh Arsenal are in for a treat next week.”
The 32-year-old was a key member of his side’s treble-winning campaign last season.
Pep Guardiola and Man City fans alike will be hoping he can deliver a similar season as the club look to defend the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League.
